ARVIN–Arvin High School junior and senior students were invited to experience an alcohol- related crash scenario where student peers were involved in being ‘the walking dead.’

The “Every 15 Minutes” program is on its website as “an event designed to dramatically instill teenagers with the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol and texting while driving” and offering “ real-life experience without the real-life risks.”

It got its title because someone is involved in an alcohol-related crash every 15 minutes in the United States.
